Recurrrent UTI: Recurrent UTI is common in some women. The things you are trying sometimes help, but usually make little difference. Sex can trigger UTI by massaging vaginal bacteria into the urethra. An antibiotic e.g. 3X weekly or after sex often often can prevent it. Or you might have an infected kidney stone, more difficult. Discuss with your doctor or ask for referral to an infectious diseases specialist.
